I think we fail to remember how fortunate many of us are with
decent internet connections in developed countries.
The top NVDA downloads come from India, with a growth of 8000
users just in the last quarter.
For many internet users, every megabyte makes a difference.

You should not be forced to get them and pick only the ones
There are people on this list with none some and quite a few
They should not be forced to get them but they need to be
aware of them just in case they need that extra functionality.

NVDA doesn't have to adopt every
popular feature of other screen-readers to compete. I
don't have much opinion about whether this feature is
implemented in NVDA directly or by an add on. It is a
peripheral feature and not an actual screen-reader
feature. It is a proper question whether NVDA
development time and resources should be put into this
project. And an add on wouldn't divert NVDA time and
resources. However, when it comes to add ons, NVDA
should do what Window-eyes used to do, not because
Window-eyes does it, but because it serves users well,
is logical and there is no reason of any substance not
to do it.
Window-eyes used to accomplish a
number of functions by having a number of what it
pretentiously called apps, they were really scripts, but
they were available to users as add ons and were shipped
with Window-eyes and were set to run at the time of
installation. Many users of whatever screen-reader they
use will never learn enough to know anything about add
ons. there are a number of add ons that should be
incorporated into NVDA as addons that are downloaded and
are running when NVDA is run.
If this were done, the major
objection against making a feature an add on would be
done away with. the objection is that a lot of people
will never know about add ons and never use whatever is
being discussed. If this objection were done away with
by having many add ons be included in NVDA as running
add ons at the time of download and installation or
portable use, the whole question and argument about
whether something should be an add on could be done away

When it comes to the new screen shade
function in Jaws 2018 and if NVDA
should also have the same function the main question is
whether or not
NVDA is in competition with other screen readers in order to
users or is NVDA just a free screen reader for those who
can't afford to
pay for a screen reader.

Regardless of where you are in New Zealand if you are
near one of the APNK sites you can use a copy of the
NVDA screen reader on one of their computers. To find
